Osvaldo Mesa’s paintings combine imagery and abstract pattern in creative juxtapositions.  They often contain African and European elements that reflect the complexity of his Afro-Cuban heritage

Trisha Kyner’s ceramic sculptures frequently borrow poses or color palettes from art history. She combines these with a feminist sensibility as she explores issues of agency, control, and vulnerability.  For both artists “Maniera” or Mannerism is authenticity rather than artifice.
